Liberty Basketball Signs Colin Porter
Ritchie McKay and Liberty men’s basketball announced the signing of Colin Porter from Ashland, Ky. Porter joins Liberty’s 2022 Class that includes Zach Cleveland and Ben Southerland.
“I think when it is all said and done, this freshmen class could be arguably as good as any that we have signed during our tenure,” head coach Ritchie McKay said. “We cannot wait to see how this group transitions from high school basketball to college basketball. I think they will have the support and the ability to impact our program right away.”
